Later on, in next parts of this series of SEO for Ajax, I will start to make a relation with SEO and what impact can Ajax have on SEO. How one should conduct and implement a proper SEO methodology for Ajax technology.
The infrastructure pattern now known as Ajax was created before 2005. Web developers using DHTML, iframes, Applets and Flash Objects had examined with better-off communication forms that resulted in a more desktop like taste of the web application. Eventually, the objective of Ajax is to boost conversion rates through a faster, more user friendly web experience. Unfortunately, un-optimized Ajax can cause performance issues, the appearance of application vulnerability, and user confusion. It can even damage your search engine rankings. The purpose of this series is to help you stay away from these possible pitfalls and harvest the rewards of Ajax.
We will go in much detail in subsequent parts of the series, here I am just going to summarize the best practices for Ajax web applications for performance, reliability and usability:
